Winemaker's Notes

The Sonoma Coast shows delicate aromas of dark cherries and oak vanillin. The wine is juicy and bright on the palate, displaying brisk acidity and complex flavors of cherries, raspberry, pomegranate and cola. Dry and elegant with supple tannins, it will develop complexity thru 2013.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-deep ruby color; earthy, forest floor, dried mushroom aromas; complex, spicy plum and ripe cranberry flavors; vibrant acidity; good structure and balance; long finish. Complex and earthy Pinot that calls out for a hearty mushroom pasta."
93 Points

"A classy Pinot Noir that shows the attributes of its vintage and origin. The grapes come from the cooler, southern part of Russian River Valley, and the wine displays brisk acidity and complex flavors of cherries, pomegranates and cola. It’s young now, but dry and elegant, and should develop bottle complexity through 2013. "
